Ho-Oh Raid Counters, What is the Best Pokemon to Beat This Rainbow Pokemon

Ho-Oh is a dual-type Fire/Flying Legendary Pokemon available to battle and catch until December 12, with base capture rate: 0.02 and base flee rate: 0.04.

Ho-Oh’s Max CP is 3889, attack 239, defense 274 and stamina 193. When it comes down to his CP – 48276. His Quick/Charge moves are:

  • Steel Wing – Quick
  • Extrasensory – Quick
  • Brave Bird – Charge
  • Fire Blast – Charge
  • Solar Beam – Charge

Ho-Oh can’t be soloed, which means you will need the best team of counters in order to defeat the trio master of the Legendary Beasts.

My No.1 choices when it comes down to Ho-Oh are Golem, Zapdos and Omastar. I’m saying this because of 3 very important things. First, Ho-Oh is weak against Rock Type Pokemon, second Ho-Oh is weak against Electric Type Pokemon and third, Ho-Oh is weak against Water Type Pokemon.

When in EX Raid Battle, make sure to use the above-mentioned Pokemon and the following Quick/Charge Moves:

  • Golem – Rock Throw/Stone Edge or Rock Blast
  • Zapdos – Charge Beam/Thunderbolt or Zap Cannon
  • Omastar – Rock Throw or Water Gun/Rock Slide or Rock Blast or Hydro Pump

If you don’t have any of these Pokemon, nothing to worry about, I got your back:

  • Dragonite – Dragon Tail or Dragon Breath/Outrage or Dragon Claw or Hurricane
  • Tyranitar – Bite/Stone Edge
  • Vaporeon – Water Gun/Hydro Pump or Aqua Tail
  • Gyarados – Bite or Dragon Breath or Dragon Tail/Hydro Pump

You now have the perfect list of Ho-Oh Raid counters. But, please have in mind that if Gen 3 drops, with new moves and new Pokemon, this list could look very different.

Ho-Oh is now live, and will stay in the game until December 12.
